We’ve created a simple yet beautiful display in store using cut out butterflies and paper coated wire.
We selected white butterflies with a pearl finish but you could chose any colour with either a pearl or matt look. Using a needle to pierce a hole in the butterfly, we then thread through some paper coated wire. Again we went for white but you could change the look with different colour paper wire. Once the wire has been thread through, simply create a loop/knot in the wire to ensure the butterfly does not move beyond this point. Then, thread as many butterflies on the wire as you would like (we went for approx 28).
We then decided to hang our string of butterflies from the ceiling and repeated the process several times to create a cascade of many falling butterflies.
You can always experiment using different colours and try hanging the butterflies from the ceiling as we did, or drape over objects to create a lovely decoration.
